Three Cayman Islands Legislative Assembly members brushed up on sustainable energy initiatives during a trip earlier this month to Trinidad.
MLAs Winston Connolly, Bernie Bush and Arden McLean attended the four-day U.K. Commonwealth Parliamentary Association workshop between Dec. 7 and Dec. 10 to gather information on what Caribbean countries are doing to move away from fossil fuels.
The topics covered in the four-day conference included energy security, financing for sustainable energy and strategies to reduce energy consumption.
“The workshop … showed me what our parliamentary colleagues are doing in the region [on] sustainable development and renewable energy,” Mr. Connolly said. “It also highlighted global warming internationally and why the Cayman Islands should be taking note in all these areas.”
Mr. Connolly said he intended to continue the dialogue on sustainable energy initiatives in Cayman during the new year.
